Building Fire and Update

Dear KEA Members:

Early this morning, a fire started in the Kenosha Education Association office building causing extensive damage. We are thankful no one was in the building at the time of the fire.

At this time, the official cause of the fire is still under investigation. We are not going to speculate why or how it happened. We will continue to provide updates as we have them.

There will be a meeting for Kenosha Education Association members at UAW Local 72. Please check your emails and Facebook for more information regarding this meeting. We thank the UAW for extending their support and space.

As we move forward, it’s important to remember our union is much more than a building. Our work is not lost. This year we have proven that the KEA can rise up out of the ashes and we are going to do it again.

We will continue to grow a more powerful union, working together to protect the rights of public school students and educators. We are confident we can continue to offer our trainings and programs planned for local educators.

We will use this time together to discuss how we can ensure the important work we do as a union every day continues and answer any questions members may have.

Please watch your email for additional updates.
